, mohamed morsi. a spokesman for senator patrick leahy had told cnn funds for egypt were being reprogrammed while the u.s. continues to review the situation there. we talked to a daily beast reporter about the u.s. cutting aid to egypt. >> the administration public line, they're disputing the term "suspended." so they are saying that this is under review, that no final decisions have been made, and that is, of course, true because no final decisions have been made. but at the same time, as senator leahy's office told me and several officials told our publication, while that review is going on the aid has been suspended. so what are we talking about? we're talking about out of $1.3 billion this military aid to the egyptian government, $585 million has not yet been delivered. it's due by the end of the fiscal year which is september 30th. so that's military financing monies that is not flowing -- money that is not flowing. most people inside the system see that as an aid suspension. the administration will say, well, it's not suspended, we're just not giving it out. to senator leahy, that's a
that is rapidly descending into violence. patrick leahy of vermont of the subcommittee is saying earlier today the obama administration has decided to cut military aid to egypt after two weeks of violence between the egyptian military, police and security forces and the muslim brotherhood in 1,000 people have been killed and david carle says the senator's understanding is the egyptian paula terry has been halted and said deputy press secretary disagrees dance the human of questions from the white house press corps before he finally declared fellow democrats patrick leahy is flat out wrong. >> it is important for you and your readers to understand providing foreign assistance you cannot turn it off fraud or up and down but it is provided so those staunches are under review it has not been cut off but is under review. >> it could describe the obama foreign policy itself and its defense firm on the senator's claim telling fox news that the state department subcommittee was told the transfer of military aid was stopped. it started by conspicuously announcing a previously unscheduled cabinet level
if circumstances warrant it. well, leading senate democrats may do it before he does. senator patrick leahy chairs the committee through which u.s. funds for egypt must flow. unless mr. obama can convince the senate otherwise aid to egypt will halt. that threatens the strategic partnership in effect since the historic 1979 camp david peace accord. before last week's crackdown the obama administration urged egypt's military to allow the pro-morsi street protests to continue. this alarmed allies like saudi arabia, the united arab emirates and jordan. they sent emmasarys. their reasoning is this. the struggle in egypt is a battle between islamic radicalism and secularism. and only one side can win. our regional allies believe president obama has been searching for a nonexistent middle ground between the muslim brotherhood and egypt's secularists. after the crackdown which left hundreds dead and thousands injured, threats to cut off aid have come from the european union and the united states. but saudi arabia and the gulf state, notably qatar, and the united arab emirates, have pledged an outlay of 1
. but then this past week, senator patrick leahy had this to say. take a listen to this. >> one law that would stop all the gun violence in this country, no. but can you do a lot better han we have in yes. and unfortunately, you have some on the left like the mayor of new york city who actually didn't help a bit with his ads. he actually turned off some people that we might have got on support. >> the good senator might be trying to excuse the incompetence of the senate with regard to the matter about you is that right that mayor bloomberg is responsible for why legislation like this has never been passed? >> it's really the job of senators to get legislation passed. >> that's that i thought. >> we have been working on this issue is, mayor bloomberg and now a thousand other mayors for seven years and during much of that seven years, it was almost impossible to get congress to pay attention. in the tucson shooting, one of congress's own gabrielle giffords was nearly an fascinated. it took ten months before we finally talked the senate judiciary committee with chuck consumer at the lead finally making th

, as they say. it's a clichÉ but there are a lot of moving parts. senator leahy has said from the beginning that he thinks aid should be cut. he said this as soon as the military deposed morsi back in july and he is saying that it is a coup when the current aid scheduled to run through september 30 is completed that they will not get any more government -- money from the united states and the white house is saying that they are still trying to figure out the situation and the sequester has impact died the aid and it goes through american arms manufacturers who build the weapons that are then provided to the egyptian military so that is how sequester defense cuts would affect the aide. >> let's talk about how the aid would effect egypt and what's going on there. would it effect the? >> i don't think it would materially. the certainly, already both states and saudi arabia are very supportive of the egyptian military and they are providing a lot of money. they are certainly filling in any hole from the eu decision to suspend aid may have had on the egyptian regime. i do not think you would hav
law. i'm proud to say that i am introducing my bill with the support of chairman blakey -- leahy. senator feinstein and i might have some overlap in our purchase. -- in our approaches andi will be happy to work with her. i like to focus my questions on transparency. in the weeks after mr. snowden's leaks, the office of the director of national intelligence decide to declassify the fact that in 2012, 300 queries were run on the database of records under section 215 of the patriot act. can you tell me why this fact was declassified? >> to be cleared, what was declassified was the fact that there were fewer than 300 telephone numbers approved for queries. there can be more than one query, based on the same telephone number. for example, over time, you can check. and see whether there has been additional communication. that was declassified was the one under reasonable and articulable suspicion. >> why did you decide to declassify the fact? the are looking at all information surrounding these programs. what has already been revealed. fundamentally, these programs were declassified to
will hear remarks from ceo matt devost. patrick leahy of vermont is our guest this weekend. he is the chairman of the judiciary committee. he talks about the issues he in thees in taken -- current session. here is a preview of some of his remarks. >> texas made changes two powers after the ruling came down. acting likea state they are open to the the association's two major the problems they had with voting could be fixed. i am hoping we can go back and act a new voting rights consistent with the supreme court. the court is up sharply divided. five people decided after an and of hearing arguments, her the in the hundreds of hours that the senate had, signed into law by republican presidents, and five people said you must have done and it runs. we are going to change it. even then, the chief justice said there would be voting rights violations. >> you can see all of his remarks today at 10:00 a.m. and again at 6:00 eastern. what are the most of years parsley's in history? adams, first mrs. to live in the white house, very opinionated, bright, capable lady. of the more sociable s
confusion over what the president's egypt policy is. an aide to democratic senator patrick leahy said the senator was told, quote, the transfer of military aid was stopped already by the obama administration in private. hit with a barrage of questions, white house spokesman josh earnest said that's not true, and danced around whether leahy's office was wrong. >> i haven't seen the whole statement, so i am not making a declaration. i will tell you our aid continues to be under review. >> reporter: a debate over semantics, just as the administration won't say there was a coup in egypt because doing so would force the u.s. by law to cut off aid. >> why won't the administration be transparent with the american people and the world when the entire world can see the military came in, took out a democratically elected president. >> and what i am saying to you, something that's available to anybody that seeks answer to this question, we made the determination that making a decision about whether or not a coup occurred is not in the best interest of the united states. >> reporter: a new pole f
, according to vermont senator patrick leahy's ovation the obama administration has suspended assistance temporarily. white house spokesman josh earnest insisted that was not true. >> this is part of a complex and broad relationship that we have with the egyptians. that review that the president ordered to early july has not concluded and reports to the contrary that -- published reports to the contrary that suggest that assistance to egypt has been cut off are not accurate. >> but leahy's office stood by its claim in a statement saying the state department and foreign operations appropriations subcommittee was told that the transfer of military aid was stopped, that this is current practice, not necessarily official policy, and there is no occasion of how long it will last. meanwhile administration cabinet members met at the white house this afternoon to discuss the egypt aid question further. >> for more on how much influence the u.s. and other nations have on the uncertain situation in egypt, i'm joined by talrak massu from the john f. kennedy school of government and the washington b
leahy, that is the exchange on the situation in egypt, talking about the potential filibuster of judges and what to expect after the return from august recess. "newsmakers" 10:00 a.m. -- 10:00 a.m. eastern time. republican not -- line, good morning. caller: there have been several stories about egypt, libya, iraq, afghanistan, and yemen. host: that was the story from "the new york times" from earlier. it basically says that intelligence officials are trying to find out where some of these officials are and whether or not there prison escape is linked or coordinated with this. caller: when the muslim brotherhood came to power, they let everyone including terrorists out of prison. ok, thank you for the call. we should point out that this week marks the anniversary of the terrorist attacks in north africa in 1998. bill clinton was in the white house. anniversary is coming up on august 2. next is cody from marietta, georgia. thank you for waiting. caller: i wanted to comment on the war on terror and our role in the movies. we wonder why there are so many terrorist attacks around the world.
-data, collecting of phone calls or phone numbers, it stopped dozens of terrorist attacks. now senator patrick leahy said maybe it was involved in one, but when you look at the details of how these programs were used, it has not stopped nearly the number that some intelligence officials have been claiming. >> yeah, and they've been -- there are many of them who have been careful to say understand this program and other programs we have stopped 54 terrorist attacks. there are some members of congress who have not been very careful and have bordered on giving false testimony to the american people and we should take a close look at that. but yeah, i think those who are careful and cautious about what they say realize that it's not this particular collection of phone records, mass collection of phone records that is doing the work here. >> i spoke to glenn greenwald on this program last night. he pointed out that high level government officials leak classified information all the time if it suits their interest, and nothing seems to happen to them. yet people with no status, no political connections li
obama. yesterday during a senate judiciary committee hearing committee chairman patrick leahy questioned if the nsa programs have helped thwart the terrorist attacks that the nsa claims they have. >> this program is not effective and i want has to end. the government is collecting information on millions of innocent americans based on an interpretation on this statute that on its face does not authorize this bulk collection. what's it going to be next? when is enough enough? >> becoming clear that the president and congress need to propose some sort of reform because the whole thing is going to come undone if they are not but what are the chances of that happening. let's bring back our gaggle. perry, it is like i said it is clear, patrick leahy was responding to the nsa put out all this public information, look at all this terrorist that was thwarted. seriously? this smells like the white house trying to float what can they come up with. >> look at the guest list. richard supported everything barack obama has done until now where he's been very critical of the nsa program. i think you're
. it was the chairman of the judiciary committee, your colleague, senator leahy, who said wait a minute, i know the nsa tells us 54 plots in one way or another have been this wartded because of the program senator chambliss is refeing to, he says that's a bit of an joef statement, and he said it in open testimony this week. listen. >> open testimony is section 215 to thwart or prevent 54 terrorist plots. not by any stretch can you get 54 terrorist plots. this program is not effective. it has to end. so far i'm not convinced by what i've seen. >> do you agree with that? >> we had a meeting in the white house, saxby and i attended it with the president. there were about ten of us, democrats and republicans, from the house and the senate, and we spent an hour and a half in the president in the oval office, an hour and a half going over this nsa, debating it back and forth. the nsa 215 program that we're talking about here is a program on domestic surveillance. in other words, do we need to collect all of the phone records of all of the people living in america for five years so that if we're going to targ
. when you have people like john mccain and patrick leahy working where they are, it is problematic. >> you have covered him in the how has he positioned himself within the democratic caucus of the senate? voice inan independent some ways. he disagreed with the white house on several fronts. he is fairly independent.the fact that he is the senate judiciary committee chairman means he cannot be too independent. he's responsible for assuring some of the administration possibly guess priorities. in some of the administration's top priorities. >> along those lines, there's no better example than what is going on with the nsa. the administration is pushing as hard as they can to defend these programs. patrick leahy has said he is he said the changes. nsa got out of their lane on this. this is problematic for the hiselligence committee. willingness as a leader and chairman to take this position shows that he is an independent in the senate. >> they brought up the issue of immigration and gun control. where are both of these issues? >> gun-control he said is over with. he sees immigration
? >> sure. the original sources came from senator patrick leahy, the head of the committee that runs foreign aid. he said the white house told him clearly most military aid had been halted while the administration conducts its review of all u.s.-egypt aid. the white house said before and after my story came out that there's been no policy decision to issuspend the aid. they're playing a word game, have their cake and eat it, too. basically, they want to preserve the flexibility to turn the aid back on if that's what he ultimately decide do, but at the same time for now most of the aid is not flowing. that's a fact. but this is something that the white house is not ready to talk about. so it's something they're trying to parse on background. >> josh, they may not be ready to talk about it, but it's, of course, out there. right? either one of you can read it one of two ways. one, the administration is trying to keep as many cards in their hand as possible. depending how the situation nets out in egypt. the other, very unsure what the foreign policy strategy is. what's your analysis of the situ
's most guarded spy programs. senator patrick leahy dismayed that no heads have rolled at the nsa. >> for a 29-year-old school dropout to come in and take out massive, massive amounts of data, it is obvious that there weren't adequate controls. has anybody been fired? >> no, sir, not yet. >> has anybody been admonished? >> sir, those investigations are under way. >> reporter: many senators believe the programs are necessary for national security, and say more is needed to ensure they're conducted legally. >> i don't want the public to take our word for it. i think there is a balance here. >> reporter: the pushback goes beyond congress. today, the conference in las vegas, a heckler shouted at nsa director general alexander. >> if you disagree with what we're doing, then you should help twice as much. >> read the constitution! >> i have. you should too. >> reporter: and tomorrow at least a half dozen members of congress are headed to the white house, invited by the president to talk about the issues as congress considers adjustments to these programs, but would keep them in operatio
leahy is the chairman of the senate judiciary committee. >> so what's going to be next? when is enough enough? i think congress has to carefully consider the powerful surveillance tools that we grant to the government. >> reporter: to ease some of the fears, the obama administration today declassified three top- secret documents detailing the n.s.a.'s mass collection of u.s. phone records. a surveillance program first revealed by edward snowden. this is the april, 2013, order from the foreign intelligence surveillance court directing a phone company to turn over domestic call data. and these letters from the justice department to congressional intelligence committees claim the n.s.a. follows strict rules safeguarding civil liberties. while heavily redacted, the letters say n.s.a. programs collect in bulk certain dialing, routing, addressing and signaling information but not the content of the calls. the letters also say the data collection efforts are subject to an extensive regime of internal checks and are monitored by the fisa court and congress. top intelligence officials, includin
wiretaps, other authorities on the patriot act. privacy is not a partisan issue. i think senator leahy and others for their support. i hope others will join that effort. we are grateful for the participation of the current member of the judiciary and former judge of the pfizer -- fisa court. i hope this will give us an opportunity for debate. and i will yield first to senator grassley and we will call on the first panel. james cole. we will put the statement in the record traded it not arrive in time to be given. he will answer questions. senator grassley. >> mr. chairman, i thank you for holding this hearing and i think it is important that congress do its oversight work which this hearing is part of, but it is even more important, the more secretive program is, the more oversight that congress has, and as you have said, probably more about this program could be told to the public and the more that could be told, maybe more understanding and less questioning on the part of the public. the foreign intelligence surveillance act provides the statutory framework for electronic surveillanc
patrick leahy questions how effective the information is in stopping terror attacks. >> this program is not effective. it has to end. so far i'm not convinced by what i see. >> the nsa insists the programs are critical to national security, and now the agency is going public with more details about them. wednesday the intelligence agency declassified three documents detailing the rules for collecting and analyzing the programs. nsa director general keith alexander defended the program at the nsa conference lvs. it was a rough crowd. >> why to congress? why have you lied to congress? >> i haven't lied to congress. >> alexander says the surveillance has helped foil terrorist activity around the world. now, the guardian newspaper which first published information through nsa contractor edward snowden is now publishing information about another program and it's called x key score and this apparently gives nsa access to virtually all internet browsing activity worldwide. anne-marie? >> susan mcginnis in washington. thank you, susan. >>> well, ariel castro, the cleveland man who held three
.s. soil, that we used both the programs. i say is jim and leahy mentioned the difference in the utility of the programs, but what i say to you is that each and every program and tool is valuable. there were gaps prior to 9/11, and what we have collectively tried to do, the members of the committee, other members of the other oversight committees, the executive branch, and the intelligence community is we have tried to close those gaps and close the seams. in the business record 215 is one of those programs that we have closed those seams. i respectfully say to the chairman that the utility of that specific program, initially, is not as valuable. i say you are right, but what i say is it plays a crucial role in closing the gaps and seams that we fought hard to gain after the 9/11 aphaks. as you mentioned, another instance, when we used the business record 215 program, as chairman leahy mentioned, so initially, the fbi opened a case in 2003, based on a tip. we investigated that tip. found no nexus to terrorism and closed the case. in 2007, the nsa advised us, through the business report 2
control took an interesting turn over the weekend. vermont senator patrick leahy says tv ads by mayor michael bloomberg turned people off to new reforms. that's going to do it for your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> heavy rain in central kansas caused widespread flashed flooding. an assisted living facility and hundreds of other residents had been evacuated. a flash flood warning sish used through monday morning. now for a look another the weather, here is nbc meteorologist dylan dreyer. all that water, is it going to continue? >> they're going to get more rain. the flash flood warnings are in effect for today. it only takes two feet of water to sweep a car away. that's why these warnings are issued to remind people don't drive into those, what look like puddles because they could be much deeper than you expect. back through kansas we're seeing more rain, also southern missouri and arkansas. minneapolis seeing torrential downpours with those thunderstorms moving into northeastern iowa. we are looking at the threat of perhaps up to three inches of rain in minneapolis and down
totally reject those kind of claims. >> the head of the senate judiciary committee patrick leahy says since the nsa is not giving straight answers he'll open a senate hearing after the summer break. >>> now to the latest developments in egypt. it's been a day of rage. dozens of people were killed in confrontations with security forces. and demonstrators gathered by the thousands. the protests came just two days after egypt's military ruler ordered his forces to clear protest camps. at least 638 people were killed and 1,000 more were wounded. nbc's ayman moden reports. >> reporter: for the third straight night the government has imposed a curfew on the capital, cairo, and cities all across the country. this comes on the heels of a day that has been called a day of rage. that's what it was called by supporters of the ousted president mohammed morrisse president mohammed morrisd mors. their aim was to express that is dissatisfaction with what happened on wednesday, the mass killing of their supporters who were camped out at a protest location demanding that president morsi be reinstated.
